The chameleon changes his colors.
Senator John McCain, hitherto the leading champion of "big government conservatism", now blames big government for the Republican's election losses:
He said last week's election, when Republicans were swept out of power in both chambers of Congress, was punishment for the party's seduction by big spending and big government.Now we see that McCain was really a "conservative of doubt" all along:
"We increased the size of government in the false hope that we could bribe the public into keeping us in office," McCain said, adding Americans "still prefer common sense conservatism to the alternative."
"Common sense conservatives believe that the government that governs least governs best, that government should do only those things individuals cannot do for themselves and do them efficiently," he said.Yes, you read that right. Senator Campaign-Finance Reform is now a "small l" libertarian.
